Black Magic Nights
The French Quarter is the cultural hub of the Lower City. Until a few years back, it looked like the French Quarter would be able to lead the whole Lower City to an economic and cultural revival – but then the comet brought the horrors, and businesses and tourists alike fled for the relative safety of the Upper City. Since then, gangs have moved in and poverty and crime have been on the rise.
While most of the old casinos and hotels stand abandoned or have been redeveloped into offices and malls (some of which still stand empty), some of the district’s glamor lives on at the Five Aces – the only major casino that didn’t turn tail and run when the Shedim showed up.
